    Multivitamin supplements have been used for decades as a way to ensure that the minimum nutrition requirements are met, despite daily variations in diet and nutrient intake. Even some of the best and well-balanced diets fall short in certain micronutrient categories. Cyto-Matrix’s Women’s Multi is specifically designed to fill these voids and meet women’s unique nutritional needs.

    Multivitamin supplements in general have been shown to improve the body’s stress response, mood and energy levels. However, multivitamin supplements unfairly get categorized as one entity without recognizing massive quality and dosage differences between formulations. For this reason, it is important to evaluate multivitamin formulas on a number of parameters.

    Firstly, different mineral salts and vitamin forms can drastically affect the absorption rates of nutrients through the digestive tract. For example, B-vitamins must first be converted into their active forms before being used within the body. If vitamin B6 is supplemented as pyridoxine HCl, the liver must first convert it into pyridoxal-5-phosphate before it can efficiently be used in physiological processes. The same principle applies to riboflavin, folic acid, vitamin B12 and other vitamins. With minerals, carbonate and oxide forms are commonly used despite the evidence that citrate, amino acid chelates and buffered blends demonstrate superior absorption.

    Secondly, a “one-a-day” multivitamin is convenient but it is often not enough to make a difference in health outcomes. To provide meaningful and evidence-based dosages of a wide variety of vitamins and minerals, more than one vegetable capsule or tablet is required. Unfortunately, to reduce capsule count, many multivitamin formulations include only trace amounts of nutrients or exclude certain nutrients, making the formula incomplete.

    Finally, specific populations and ages have unique nutritional requirements. When it comes to female nutritional requirements, it is well-known that women are at higher risk than men for osteoporosis and iron deficiency anemia. Additionally, women of reproductive ages require adequate folate intake to aid in healthy fertility outcomes.

    For these reasons, Cyto-Matrix’s Women’s Multi is formulated with significant, yet well-balanced, amounts of elemental calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, folate and iron. All nutrients in Women’s Multi are found in their active and highly bioavailable forms, such as mixed tocopherols, methylcobalamin, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) and citrate salt minerals. Simply put, nutrient dosages, ratios and forms are intended to support optimal health outcomes in women.
